opp was 87/30 over 207 hands, just a total spewy fish overall. I really didn't know what to make of his flop bet. In general should I just be raising here on the flop and trying to get as much money in as possible? I figured my hand was so strong that I didn't want to blow him off his early, but looking at it now, another heart would probably cause him to shut down, so maybe I should be looking to get value from his worse kings, and flush draws, and take my chances racing if he reshoves K3,K4,34 (occasionally 33 and 44)..thoughts?

I think your analysis about it being hard to get payed off when a heart comes is the crux of the situation here. I often don't like raising in these spots, but I think it's pretty reasonable here. You're getting it in bad occasionally, but given your reads I don't think that should stop you here given the overall strength of your hand.

I think you played it perfect. I dont like to raise here vs loose/ agro opponents because youre not scared of too much. In your analysis I think youre a bit too results oriented in this case. You are really not afraid of his 4 outer. If you raise I am sure you win the pot on the flop but in that case you win 10-20 dollars. The way you played it you give him a good shot and spewing off and he still has 10% equity or so. In other situations where he has hands like kqh, kjh or some top pair hand with a decent heart the way you played it is perfect which i like. With those hands a fish or even a reasonable player will be tempted to pay off on any heart river and your still not afraid or much at all. Just a bit UL here is all.
